The floating platform which has been realized with more than 400 double cubes, represents the visible part of the bathing area. It is delimited by hundred railing posts in polyethylene and an outlying net which secures the structure. A zone of 60m² has been added to the pool to enable people enjoying the sun in quietly.

The anchoring has been realized with chains fixed on dead weights in the bottom of the river. Further chains have also been fixed to the concrete wharf. The bottom of the pool which is 240m² and realized with double cubes with low freeboard, is submerge at a depth of 1,20m thanks to tubes made in galvanized steel.
